IACET Blog — Let's Talk Andragogy: How Adults Learn
IACET
Do you remember your first day of school? I'll admit that the memory is a little hazy for me. Fortunately, I have the relatively fresher memories of watching my children's first days. Be that as it may, there's an excitement, an eagerness to engage and learn what this thing called school is all about. And that's what Pedagogy — or the theory and practice of education — is built on.

IACET Connection Webinar — Wednesday, April 15 from 3-4 p.m. EST
'Adults Learn Differently: Applying Adult Learner Theories to CEU Course Design and Facilitation'

Presented by Cheryl Hayek and Jennifer Shreckengost
Did you know that there is an art and a science in how adults learn? In order for adult learners to successfully gain the knowledge from your CEU courses, your approach should be in alignment with adult learner theories. Not only will they be more likely to be open to the learning, but they will enjoy the approach more because it is designed with their learning style in mind. In this webinar we will focus on key strategies for adult learner success such as andragogy, cognitive load theory, self-efficacy, multiple intelligences, learning styles, schemata theory, and other simple approaches to CEU course design for your students' optimal success!

Adult education lagging way behind in tech
THE Journal
While schools have placed a great deal of attention on technology in the classroom, it appears one instructional segment, adult education, has been left behind. Although 86 percent of adult education administrators and practitioners said they believe that technology solutions can "effectively support" adult education, only 54 percent of students in those programs always have access on site to computers for instructional purposes. Another 36 percent have only "occasional" access, and the bulk of the remainder have even less.

Adult education needs more 'passion' and investment from technology entrepreneurs, report says
The Hechinger Report
Adult education could be improved through the use of educational technology, but there is not enough investment in it, according to two reports. Millions of adults seeking new workforce skills say they need better educational opportunities, but little of the recent cash infusion into educational technology has gone toward addressing those needs, according to the first of two research reports, based on a national survey and study from Tyton Partners, a firm that provides investment banking and strategy consulting.

The best way to learn is...?
Training Zone
There is a storm brewing ... and it is all about learning styles ... the storm says we learn best when we follow our natural style... but on the other hand, it says that this is rubbish. So let us look at this from a sensible view point ... Think about the Honey and Mumford learning styles and let us imagine you are an activist; the sort of person who really likes to get stuck in and experience things, never afraid of putting themselves forward in a learning activity to give it a go. Nothing wrong with experiencing something ... it gives us a valuable opportunity to see how something "feels" and then if we reflect on it, we might just squeeze a little more learning out of it.

How to use feedback to improve your work
Administrate
Asking for feedback can be a difficult thing, but it's a very important part of the learning process. If you want to know what you're doing well, or what points you need to improve on, you'll need to be prepared to ask your trainer or teacher for feedback on your work. While receiving what can be perceived as negative feedback may be quite a difficult thing, it can actually be more useful than receiving positive feedback. It highlights the areas you aren't doing as well in, and therefore lets you know what you need to focus on to improve the quality of your work.

Much more about MOOCs
Harvard Magazine
Lifelong learners? As might be expected of MOOCs created by faculty members from elite, selective institutions like Harvard and MIT, they aim high. The report reveals that among the participants in the 1.7 million course units logged, the proportion with bachelor's degrees ranges from 61 percent in STEM offerings and 63 percent in computer-science classes to 76 percent for those studying in humanities and associated fields, and 81 percent in the government, health and social-science area.
